Vijay’s 63rd film, which is being directed by Atlee and produced by AGS Entertainment, has got a major star attraction.
Yes, Bollywood veteran Jackie Shroff has been roped in to be part of the sports-based movie and he will play the role of football association in the movie.
Meanwhile, Krishna Devi, a junior artiste who has been part of Tamil cinema for more than thirty years, has accused director Atlee of verbally abusing her on the sets of Thalapathy 63 on April 16.
She cites the elections and the government holidays as the reason for her not coming out in the public earlier. “All we did is ask the assistant directors for basic amenities like food, and proper toilets. But Atlee and his ADs didn’t respond properly to our request and started verbally abusing us. They also forcefully removed me from the spot.”
In her petition, Devi wrote, “I was working for the film which Atlee is directing, during their schedule at the EVP Film City. While I was doing my job, Atlee and his assistants spoke very ill of me, and made me walk out of the spot.
I request immediate enquiries and action to be taken upon Atlee and his assistants.” Devi added that Atlee’s assistants had screamed at her because she didn’t serve them good food during the shoot.
Thalapathy 63, based on football, stars Vijay, Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Yogi Babu, and Indhuja. The film has music by A R Rahman.
